"New Year at School Farm cottage"

We wanted a quiet get away from it all, cosy cottage for new year and that's what we got. Little cold on first night but once the little log burner got going it warmed up. Hosts Juliet and Wayne … More

Unfortunately the night storage heaters had been turned off the day before your stay, and it did not store much heat until that night which is why Wayne laid the fire for you. Sadly most people do not know how night storage heaters work. Also I am sorry to say you turned the out put up to full which meant they let out all of their heat in one go. And you turned the heat regulation down. We will leave instructions for future guests thankyou for your honesty and so sorry. The previous and present guests feel it is cosy.
We will have to have a little sign sayning to leave the dials. Fond regards Juliet and Wayne.

"Wonderfully Friendly, Fabulous Location and Very Pretty Cottage"

This was a really pretty cottage which was very spacious in a great location with trampoline and football pitch and park next door. My kids loved feeding the chickens and playing with the owners pets. The cottage is really close to Glastonbury which was good, just a short drive away. We loved being away from it all down a country lane but it was really the welcome and care and attention that we received from the owners that made this such a lovely holiday. I have never met such lovely holiday home owners. They, for me made the holiday the best. While we had our own privacy, knowing that they were just next door for extra fire wood, advice about areas or just a friendly chat was just great. My children really enjoyed their holiday home as did I and we would definitely go back there again.
